Meet Matt Besler: Surviving Sibling Rivarly
[VIDEO PICK: Off the Post] U.S. defender Matt Besler discusses his childhood and shares a few precious moments he had with his two younger
brothers in this 2 1/2 minute edition of U.S. Soccer’s "One Nation. One Team. 23 Stories."
"We always had a rule," says Besler. "No matter what happened, you couldn't go tell mom
and dad. I think it's a great rule!"
The Kansas native also talks about his wife and how appreciative they are of Kansas City fans for buying out their online wedding registry.
Besler is proud to be the first player from Kansas to represent the USA:
"That's something I still carry with me, and I'll carry it with me every day of my life."
